Assignment: The war through your eyes: Iraq 10 years on
iREPORTERS SIGNED UP
Created February 1, 2013 by
The week of March 17 marks the 10-year anniversary of the war in Iraq, when a U.S.-led coalition invaded the country to topple Iraqi President Saddam Hussein.
The war succeeded in removing a despotic regime, but sparked years of sectarian strife in the Middle Eastern nation and regional upheaval, while the U.S. and its allies also felt the repercussions of a battle thousands of miles away.
A decade on from the conflict, CNN is keen to hear from those who were involved, from Iraqis themselves and people in neighboring countries, to the military who served in battle (and those they left behind), to charity workers and contractors who worked in Iraq at this time.
What was the war like for you? How did the experience change your life? Ten years on, what do you think the Iraq war has changed in you, and in your country?
Send us your thoughts and experiences -- and particularly any images or video you may have from the period -- and you could help shape CNN’s coverage.
